The Northern Regional Director of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Mrs. Elisabeth De-souzahas has underscored the need for students in Second Cycle Institutions in the country especially in the Northern Region to place priority on their studies in achieving the desired results.
This she said this would transform them into responsible citizens for both their parents and the society, lamenting on the state of student indiscipline in recent times.
The Eductaion Director advised students to turn away from elements that could deprive them from their study times and appealed to them to resist any attempt by their colleagues to influence them into acts of indiscipline.
Mrs. De-Susan was addressing students of the Ghana Senior High School (GHANASCO) at a brief ceremony organized to present to the school a prize for emerging the overall winner in the Regional Independence day debate.
She noted that students could only achieve laurels if they remain committed to their studies.
She appealed to teachers not to relent in their efforts in helping the students and expressed the hope that the items would be used for the intended purpose.
Tthe Headmistress of GHANASCO Mrs. Mary Asobayire Dan-Braimah disclosed that the school over the years has
achieved several laurels in academia and called on the students to join various educational clubs in the school to improve upon their written and spoken English.
Mrs. Dan-Braimah was however worried that despite the school’s
achievements, topics for both regional and national debates are received late while competing schools in the South get theirs earlier.
This disparity she observed is impacting negatively on the performance of the school in such events and appealed to the GES to address this concern immediately to be fair to all competing schools in the country.
She said the 21” colour television set and the Digital Video Disc (DVD) player would go a long way in enhancing the school’s teaching and learning, saying “it will serve as a motivation to students who aspire to higher heights especially in education.
